Exodus 22:23

Hebrew Bible

21 “You must not wrong a resident foreigner nor oppress him, for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. 22 “You must not afflict any widow or orphan. 23 If you afflict them in any way and they cry to me, I will surely hear their cry, 24 and my anger will burn and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives will be widows and your children will be fatherless. 25 “If you lend money to any of my people who are needy among you, do not be like a moneylender to him; do not charge him interest.

Psalm 34:6

Hebrew Bible

4 I sought the Lord’s help and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. 5 Look to him and be radiant;do not let your faces be ashamed. 6 This oppressed man cried out and the Lord heard; he saved him from all his troubles. 7 The angel of the Lord camps around the Lord’s loyal followers and delivers them. 8 Taste and see that the Lord is good. How blessed is the one who takes shelter in him.
